Deafness

Has anyone else experienced deafness? I’ve heard (haha see what I did there?) that deafness is really uncommon, but I’ve been deaf for about a month.

Anyone have an experience with this? It’s a cognitive loss, not an actual hearing loss, so there’s that. Hrrumph.

Wow, not heard of that, but heard that some people have had other auditory problems like ringing ears.

Deafness through a cognition problem is a definite bummer, but at least you know it may return 🙂

Ugh, yea…I’m crossing my fingers!
A friend’s dad lost his vision completely for two months then woke up one morning and could see. I’m hoping!

@christeeny I had a relapse this time year where I lost the hearing in one ear for about 8 weeks. As a result my balance was affected and I found it all a bit disorientating. Although it does seem pretty rare, my neuro was very calm about it and sure enough, a few weeks later it began to improve and after two months it was back to normal.

I hope yours comes back very soon. It’s really frustrating but fingers crossed youll be hearing ok in no time.

Thanks! It’s good to know there’s possibly light at the end of the tunnel.
In the meantime I’ve become a very talented lip-reader.
I do miss music though…

Think I’d be lost without music, but at least I will be able to meditate more easily…I think controlling your mind is half the problem 😉

When I was at my worst, I had a tendancy to tilt my head to the side, and my hearing was muffled on that side. This has cleared up as the double vision – horizontal and lateral. I hope i am now coming out of it, as my balance is improving on a daily basis. Although I was not deaf, my hearing was impaired by the relapse…..
Take care

Hi! I experienced a loss of hearing in my left ear. It slowly improved after having 3 days of steroid infusions, due to several issues during a relapse. It took a good month before I felt it was fully back. It went from loss, to ringing, then to just being muffled/ringing in loud busy places such as the mall. Now I feel like it’s fully back.

Yup, I felt like I need to pop my ears after a longhaul flight, but it doenst work as they are not blocked. Similar to @gpeps actually. It took about 2 months to go away, and putting it down to some weird form of relapse of sort.
